This is the powder I'm currently using. I'm always worried that trying new products may affect my skin since it is a little sensitive. I never have to worry with Physicians Forumla. It is rather expensive for a drugstore powder, but when it goes on sale, it is affordable. It is basically the only time I will purchase this powder. It does a fairly good job for my oily skin, but mid day I do see my oil will seep through. I definitely have to blot or reapply. I would only recommend this when it is on sale.
I tried this mineral powder after my usual one was discontinued. I really like physicians formula but I'm always hesitant to try new powders and foundations because my skin is über dry and sensitive.
The coverage is flawless, it wears well and is easy to apply! I'm in love with this product!
The Physician's Formula Pressed Powder in Translucent/Light is amazing but sooooo expensive - especially for a drugstore option.However it is great and well worth it as it can be worn alone or over liquid foundation. It has lasting power and helps to blur big pores and redness - both of which I am afflicted with. This powder is commonly found in drugstores, at Target and at Walmart. But I will only buy it when it is on sale so I can save a few bucks. Naturally I will stock up when there is a sale.
This is a pretty good product. It doesn't look cakey on my face and is nice over foundation.
I absolute love love this product. It feels great on my skin! It's light and goes in very easily. It looks very natural on my skin too! This is my all-time favourite powder.
When I was using another brand of pressed powder, my skin would almost always break out, or look awful. I was getting blotchy red skin and I was so upset. I discovered Physicians Formula about 6 years ago, and decided to try it. WOW!! I have never been happier! It was the talc in the other products that was causing all my woes. The mineral wear actually helps your skin, it breathes better and is natural, and I saw the difference almost right away. The fact that my skin could breathe was the biggest plus and then not getting any breakouts is an added bonus. I highly recommend you run out to buy this product you will not be sorry.
Love this product. I don't need foundation, but fid this a great light coverage and base for blush or highlighter.
I love using this along with the Physicians Formula Loose Powder (foundation?). It gives buildable medium coverage, perfect for evening out skin tone and combating oil even on top of liquid foundation. It gives a natural, beautiful finish.
A bit about my skin:
I have combination-leaning-dry sensitive skin. My complexion is almost clear except for a bit of redness on my cheeks, but I am breakout prone if not careful.
Onto the product:
I got this for $18.99 in Superstore. I own this in Creamy Natural, and find it a great match for my skin tone. The compact seems very sturdy and you get a lot of powder for your money. Though I must say that I really hate the brush that's included, so I use my own. It's very finely milled, and goes on smoothly. It offers light coverage, just enough to even out my skin tone and to tone down the redness. I can't speak too much on it's mattifying properties as my complexion does lean dry, but I find my oilier bits don't really get oily when wearing this.
The only negatives I can think of are the useless brush and lack of shades to choose from. But if they do have a shade that matches you, it's a great powder foundation.
This is a very light-weight face powder that offers a very natural appearance. It absorbs oil and works wonders for sensitive or acne prone skin. This compact includes a built-in mirror and make up brush. One of the best face powders I've purchased in a drug store.
